Healing with your hands
Myotherapists assess and physically treat myofascial pain, injury and dysfunction affecting movement and mobility.
Our 22316VIC Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy is focused on allowing you to enhance your technical and theoretical skills gained working as a Remedial Massage Therapist. Further exploring injury, muscular dysfunction and pain, the course allows you to enhance your current scope of practice.
